Director of External Affairs

Heyy dear Veetelers,

Let me introduce myself; I am Britt de Winter, 22 years old and am now in my 4th year of study. And if you're wondering, yes, I'm still working on my bachelor's degree. I'm from Zoetermeer, but this year my parents moved to Hazerswoude-Rijndijk, a village in Zuid-Holland. Ever since I was a little girl, I have been crazy about animals, especially horses and cows were my favorites. I have ridden horses most of my life and from the age of ten you could find me around the cowshed. From there my love for livestock grew and after high school it was a logical step to study Animal Sciences. One of the best choices I have made, the study suits me perfectly.

In my daily life I am quite busy, but there are some things I like to make time for, photography, swimming and going to a party or having a drink with my friends are things I like to do. I really enjoy it here in Wageningen and at “De Veetelers”, and since I live in Veetelershuis Delirium, I feel even more at home. Some of you may already know me from my time on the board of RFS, or from another committee I have worked on in recent years at “De Veetelers”. During my time in the RFS-board I was responsible for contact with the sponsors, which sparked my interest in the function Commissioner External Affairs.

I'm very much looking forward to be a part of the Board of “De Veetelers” in the coming year and becoming the bridge between the association and the sponsors, various companies and all other “external affairs”. I look forward to getting to know even more Veetelers and being representative for the association. If you have a question about "external affairs", the association or just something completely different, you can always contact me, I am always up for a nice chat!

Kind Regards,
